The STF – Pham Phu Thu scholarship program of the Saigon Times Foundation (STF) under the Saigon Times Group, in coordination with the education authority of Dai Tu District in Thai Nguyen Province, last Friday presented 40 scholarships worth VND3 million each to underprivileged students with outstanding academic records in the district.

The scholarships were funded by Proconco and Masan Nutri – Science.

Launched in January 2017, the STF – Pham Phu Thu scholarship program has raised VND2.85 billion from businesses and benefactors to support students with good academic performance but poor backgrounds. The program has to date granted 140 scholarships and 21 computers to students and schools in provinces such as Quang Nam, Ben Tre and Thai Nguyen.

Pham Phu Ngoc Trai, chairman of Masan Nutri-Science, said this is part of the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) program intended to help students in difficulty continue schooling and become good citizens in the future.
